COURTLAND—Southampton’s Ashlee Buenher pitched a no-hitter with six strikeouts and two walks during the Lady Indians’ 10-0, five-inning non-district win over Windsor on Friday.

The Lady Indians improved to 7-1 overall and are 4-1 in the Southside District.

Southampton had two errors in the field.

The Lady Indians for the second day in a row had the bats rolling with seven out of nine starting players hitting, said Coach Susan Melbye.

Megan Revelle led, going 2-for-3 while scoring two runs and picking up four RBIs. Buenher also went 2-for-3 and added an RBI. Katie Ferguson was 2-for-3 with three runs scored and an RBI.

The Lady Indians have been impressive on the base path with going a straight 45 out of 45 steals on the season, Melbye said.

“The Lady Indians have shown their speed on the base paths that helps put them in scoring position,” Melbye said.

Today, Southampton will play Sussex at 4:30 p.m. at home. The Lady Indians will host Nottoway at 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 12, and travel to Greensville Thursday, April 14, at 5 p.m.
